UniLink diplomas

UniLink diplomas are an option for students who miss direct entry to a degree or who would benefit from a more supportive style of learning.

The classroom content in a UniLink diploma is based on bachelor degree courses, but you will have more contact hours, smaller class sizes and more one-on-one time with your teachers.

Successful completion provides entry into a bachelor degree, with advanced standing of up to one year of full-time study (depending on the degree and major that you progress to).

UniLink diplomas take eight months to complete. There are three intakes each year (February, June and October), so you can progress to a related bachelor degree sooner rather than later.

What are your options?

Diploma to degree pathway options from UniLink are available via the pathway planner.
